Joe Rogan left his future with the Ultimate Fighting Championships up for question in his latest “Joe Rogan Experience” podcast. His written agreement with the promotion is ending shortly and Rogan expressed interest in perhaps moving on.
“My contract’s up in August,” he said, as transcribed by MMAjunkie. “I might leave in August. It’s possible. I like doing s— that scares me. I like doing stuff – I like taking chances in that I like walking away from things. I like doing that. I like experiencing new things. You open up new doors, your mind starts firing in a different way. I’m not a big fan of doing the same sh-t over and over and over again.
“Like when I do stand-up comedy, I have to go to different places. I like to go to weird spots. I’ll do a weird open mic night in the middle of f—king nowhere. I think it’s really important. I like to go to new places. I like to travel. I like to just get in my car and drive places and get out of my car and walk around and check out places.”
Ronda Rousey just checked herself out of being the top woman in the UFC, as Holly Holm’s hands and feet helped her out. Conor McGregor feels himself and Ronda aren’t on even playing field when it comes to talks of who is the bigger name in the company.
“In reality we are two different people on two different paths,” he argued. “I don’t really focus on her situation or anyone else’s situation for that matter. I’m just doing what I’m doing and what I’m doing, I’m carrying this whole damn game and I love it. It feels light. I’m carrying it on my shoulders, but it honestly feels light to me.
“I feel like I’m doing single-leg squats with the whole game on my shoulders because it ain’t nothing.”
